Its a scary world

Very scary. This brave new world of Big Tech censorship is a scary one. Swear to God the modern day American takes freedom of speech for granted, and cannot see how it is slipping away. It started in the 70s with “political correctness“. Not that you should not say something because it was wrong to do so, but because of societal pressure. I determined early on in the pandemic that I could tell the state of COVID-19 by the rising and falling amounts of toilet paper on the shelves. I had the innate feeling it would be a quicker and more accurate barometer than any government report.

For speech my measuring stick has always been the use of the word ‘nigger’. In the first part of the decade of the 70s it would still appear once in awhile on a show like All in the Family to demonstrate Archie’s racism, and in the odd movie now and again. In Blazing Saddles they “used it” sort of, they bleeped it out, but you knew what they were saying. Blazing Saddles was more in the middle of the decade. The shift was beginning. Don’t use a word because you know better, not out of fear.

Now we have supposedly rational adults talking about the ‘N’ word. Perhaps the worst part of the censorship is being banned from someplace and not even being told why. Now with Twitter I at least knew why I was kicked off there. I had commented that it was sick behavior for these muslims to be burning a dog alive in this video. I got banned for saying a protected group had exhibited sick behavior.

Now when I got kicked off YouTube I don’t know what it was for. It could have been when in the comment section on a video about the eternal corruption of the Mexican government I had called that country a shithole. Or it could have been on the 500th video on this crime channel where the perpetrators were black males between the ages of 15 and 35 wearing hoodies, and I had pointed that out. As Ann Coulter says, at a certain point it ceases to be profiling, and becomes a description of the suspect.

I can’t even remember what got me kicked off of Facebook. It was something right before the election when they were wanting to purge conservatives and I had said something about Democrats and cheating. On Gateway Pundit and World Net Daily I got kicked off for using my “emphasis” words: ‘damn, bastard, asshole’, and the like. Those type of sites all use a service called Disqus that is a modern incarnation of George Carlin’s 7 Dirty Words. It catches your ‘poo poo pee pee titty’ type words.

So now we come to the final stages of censorship. That’s the way tyranny works, it gets its nose under the tent, and pretty soon its all the way in. The “last bastion”, Gab, won’t let me say ABC or NBC is “fake news“. And to me, someone whose memory goes back to the 60s, this is an absurd and unacceptable situation. FYI 2 sites I haven’t been kicked off of are Breitbart and FOX News. Kind of surprising.

Facebook readers lack comprehension skills

Facebook had an article from Breitbart about AOC this morning. I don’t even remember what it was about. I do remember the reaction I got to a comment I made. I simply made the comment that she had a lot of gumption and imagine what it would be like if Republicans had half the spunk she did?

Well! That certainly didn’t sit well with the brain trust on Facebook. Show them a picture of AOC and its like ringing Pavlov’s bell, they begin salivating and attacking immediately! They began to tell me that I had called her smart and that in fact she was dumb! They told me that I had said she was good for America and that she was bad for America!

They also told me that I had called her a capitalist when in fact she was a socialist! I came away from the experience convinced that the average Facebook visitor reads at the level of a 3rd grader. They don’t read for comprehension, its more of an interpretive reading thing they have going on.

They interpret what you say in a wildly different manner then what you actually said. I had simply said she had courage, and wouldn’t it be remarkable if the Republicans had some of that? That’s all. It was just amazing the reaction I got. People that stupid are driving on our highways? Operating dangerous equipment? Voting? Living next-door? That’s scary!
